Hi - I am new to this forum. I have a bulging disc at C5/6 and surgery is recommended. I was rear ended in an auto accident. The case is a govt case due to the fact the driver was going to an NIH conference. They have made a low settlement offer due to the fact that I have not had the recommended surgery.
The fact is I am terrified that I will need another fusion somewhere else down the line. Or, that my cord will be nicked and I will end up paralyzed.
If you knew my life story, you would understand my fears of the worst happening to me.
I hope someone can give me some encouragement. I have been living w the pain and on pain medications.
